iSCSI Initiator Fails to Reconnect after Reboot

The Microsoft iSCSI Initiator fails to reconnect after restart. Have to manually go to iSCSI Initiator to refresh the connection for the target. The target is set to auto connect, but it does not work. The current workaround requires setting up Multiple Connected Sessions which is not supported by NTFS in Windows 7. Therefore my log is throwing exceptions trying to connect to the target on reboot. However, the connection does resume. Clearly there is a bug as it should work with auto connect on restart checked.

So far I have tried setting static IPs for both the host and NaS, double checked the IQN is properly formatted, set the discovery to use the static IPs instead of default, and made sure there are not duplicate iSCSI devices in Device Manager.
